And anyone have any idea what this is?I was wondering the same thing. Maybe it's a way of sending info from monitoring devices to the cloud on a schedule, and then can be viewed by doctors at their convenience.Cloaca
This is a natural evolution of Qualcomm's business solutions from closed loop Satcom service to more open, lower cost, hardware and comm system agnostic services.You can trace a dotted line from Qualcomm's first profitable business in Omnitracs, to this cloud based medical communications service. QCOM started with an end to end transportation industry communication using Ku-band satellites. Then they were able to open up to lower cost hardware solutions that took advantage of other networks. e.g. Communication and tracking equipment products like Omni2000 and Globaltracs came in. At some point the Qualcomm network picked up medical tracking device customers like Cardionet, and then later provided background network services for Kindle. The early Omnitrac systems relied heavily on Qualcomm's network hubs. That's expensive. The growth of cellular and the internet allows them to move products and services onto lower cost solutions and into bigger niche data markets.
